£11m former Leeds United striker Ross McCormack admits recent struggles at Fulham

The Scottish international has not had a great run of form recently.

Not many a Leeds United fan expected their star striker Ross McCormack to remain at the club last summer, but few would have expected to receive the amount if cash they did for the player from a team in the same division.

In the end it was recently relegated Fulham who splurged a reported £11 million on the Scottish international, according to the BBC.

For Leeds fans it was a tough pill to swallow. Fans in general were divided on his departure. Some were sad to see him go and understood his desire to move on. Others could not forgive him forcing a move, especially after he kissed the badge.

However it has been made easier by what has been a difficult first season at Craven Cottage for the Scot.

McCormack has managed just 12 goals in 42 appearances for The Cottagers, compared to the 29 he bagged for Leeds last season.

Recently he has really struggled to find the back of the net, scoring just once in his last eight games. Now he has discussed his form to the official Fulham website, stating his belief that he is slowly getting back to his best:

“It’s frustrating, yeah. I think we deserved at least a point [against Watford].

“We had a few good chances. They’ve made a couple of saves from me. I probably should have scored one, maybe two.

“We just didn’t take our chances, or I didn’t take my chances. But I now feel like I am playing and getting in positions that will hurt defenders.”

Leeds fans will certainly be glad the grass has not proved much greener for their former captain, whose Fulham side sit five places and five points behind Leeds in the Championship table.
